1. Our policy
2. Who processes your personal data
ArcDog is the data controller of the personal data of the users registered through Archilovers.com. The company decides independently on the processing purposes and methods while respecting the law, including the security profile. For organisational and functional requirements alone, we have appointed some data processing chiefs and/or data processors of user data, for the purposes strictly related to and inherent to performing services linked or connected to Archilovers.com. These subjects were chosen because they have demonstrated experience, expertise and reliability to provide sufficient guarantees of complete compliance with the applicable rules on data processing, including the data security profile. The data processing chiefs process the personal data of users of our websites according to the instructions given by the Company. We periodically verify that the data processing chiefs have correctly fulfilled their tasks and that they continue to offer suitable guarantees of compliance with the provisions on the protection of personal data. The data processors are employees of the Company ArcDog.
3. How we use your personal data and for what purposes
Your personal data is collected and processed by ArcDog for purposes strictly related to using the website and its information services with information also provided by third-party advertisers. Your personal information may also be used in other processing operations, however, in a manner in line with these purposes. In particular, your personal data may be processed for the following purposes:
– within the website registration process we collect your data (for example, your personal data, an address or phone number, your user ID and password, e-mail address) through the relevant registration form in order to send you our free newsletters and to provide access to the restricted areas and functions of our websites;
– to provide you with support services;
– we process your data (e.g., personal data, email address, postal address, telephone number) to respond to your requirements including, but not limited to, insertion and management of professional profiles, requesting and obtaining catalogues, brochures, information also provided by third parties like our advertisers.
Your personal data is processed mainly electronically and in some cases also in printed matter. Your personal data will be stored in a way that allows you to be identified for the time strictly necessary for the purpose for which the data was collected and subsequently processed and, in any case, within the limits of the law. To ensure that your personal information is always correct and up-to-date, relevant and complete, please inform us of any changes at: [email protected]. Your personal information will not be disclosed to third parties for purposes not permitted by law or without your explicit consent. Moreover, your personal data may be disclosed to law enforcement or judicial authorities, in accordance with law and prior to formal request by these authorities, for instance within anti-fraud services. Your data will also be accessible to data processing chiefs as indicated in par. 2 and for the specific purposes indicated in the same paragraph. In all these cases, your consent is not required. Your personal information may be disclosed to the public only with your consent and only while providing the services rendered by our websites. Your personal information will not be transferred abroad. Please note that ArcDog processes personal data of its users only for purposes strictly related to the provision of the services rendered through its websites and to inform you about new commercial initiatives closely related to the activities and services of the website. ArcDog processes your personal data for direct marketing purposes, also by email, with your consent alone.
4. What happens if you do not communicate your personal data to ArcDog
The communication of your data to ArcDog and, in particular, personal information, your email address, your postal address and phone number are required for receiving the newsletter and for accessing the free services provided by its network or for providing other services on the website requested by you or when your data is necessary for fulfilling legal obligations or procedures. Any refusal to communicate the data necessary for such purposes to ArcDog may make it impossible for ArcDog to provide the services through its websites, like sending you newsletters, providing information or printed materials, sending you news about conferences, seminars and courses, providing assistance services and correctly fulfilling legal obligations and procedures. Failure to communicate the data may, as appropriate, provide a legitimate and justified reason for ArcDog to not execute or terminate the services requested by you. Communication of additional data to ArcDog, other than that required for fulfilling its services is, however, optional and has no consequence on the use of the website. Depending on the circumstances and, if necessary at the time, we will duly inform you of the compulsory or optional requirement of communicating your personal data to ArcDog. We will inform you of the compulsory or optional requirement of your personal data, by placing an asterisk (*) before compulsory information necessary to provide the services on our websites. Please note that the failure to disclose optional personal data does not entail any obligations or any disadvantages.
5. Who do we communicate your personal data to
Your personal data may be made available to third party companies who process the data independently only to carry out the operations described on our websites as indicated in paragraph 3 above and only when such a purpose is not incompatible with the purposes for which your data was collected and subsequently processed and, in any case, in accordance with the law. The data will not be communicated, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties, without the users having been informed beforehand and, with their consent, when it is required by law.
6. How we collect your information on our sites
While using and browsing on our websites, some personal information may be collected automatically (by means of so-called “Cookies “), like, for example, the collection of the user’s IP address and other information relating to browsing the website or the user’s preferences expressed when choosing the services offered by the site.
